Cabo fishing report
This week we release plenty of striped marlin from around the 95 bank to the 1150, we also found a lot of dolphins around the same areas and with them lots of small yellowfin tunas and some dorados in small numbers but good size, we saw a couple of swordfish out there as well but didn’t get them to take our bait.
In shore fishing it’s still really good with rooster fish and sierras around el tule and Solmar.
The weather has been a bit humid and hot with winds in between 5 to 11kt so it feels really good fishing out there, So if you are heading down to Cabo San Lucas and you are a sport fishing person, you should really go fishing.
Now it’s a perfect time with high % of success every day.

The weather in Cabo San Lucas is way better after hurricane Dora was gone, our water temperatures in shore are low 60s and that attracts fish like Spanish mackerel and rooster fish.
Yesterday on our pangas the captains caught a few rooster fish and lots of Spanish mackerel, The yachts within our fleet went out 35 miles in search for the hot blue water once they got there they found a lot of dolphins feeding so they started trolling Cedar plugs to bring back home plenty of yellowfin tuna and e few decent dorado fish for dinner.

Fishing has been great except for one day that the port was close because of bad weather conditions, We have been catching multiple striped marlin every day a few yellowfin tunas really early in the morning and occasionally Dorados and wahoos. If you would like to go for yellowfin tuna we strongly recommend to be at the marina at 6am so that you can run out in search for dolphins, there has been a couple of over 200 lb yellowfin tunas caught this week by doing so.
If your trying to put a check mark on your fishing bucket list with a marlin, well right now is the perfect time for that, pack your bags head down to Cabo and allow us to make your fishing experience unforgettable.
Lots of Marlin Near 1150 and Santa Maria!
Wahoo, Tuna and Dorado are here as well but in small numbers!
Sierra: On Live Bait and Hootchies!
Roosters on Live Bait: In Shoreline!
Red Snapper and Groupers on Chunk Bait!
WEATHER: Really windy some days out of this past week, In general we cant complain about the weather at all, it has been really nice and sunny about every day. The wind has picked up pretty good over the last 3 days, though with some pretty good gusts during the day time and even at night. As I sit and write this report I can hear the wind blowing now. If you were in a small boat over the last 2 or 3 days you will have experienced a pretty rough ride due to windy conditions. The actual temperatures are really great with highs in the ladder 80, is too low 90, so in the day time and cooling off pretty good at night down into the mid 60’s.
WATER: With the windy conditions the water has been pretty wild with some rough seas on the pacific side and of course on the Sea of Cortez its been calmer, but due to the windy conditions its rough out there. Still quite the contrast in water temperatures from the Pacific to the Sea of Cortez. All warm water on the Cortez side and cold water on the Pacific side. It is 69 degrees up above the Finger Bank on the Pacific side and on the Cortez side it is pushing 79 degrees.
BILLFISH: Marlin have kida showed up late this year, they should have been here a couple months ago, like in February, but it looks as they are showing now in good numbers. Looks as if most Marlin are wanting to bite Ballyhoo as we have been scoring using the Ballys. The Marlin fishing has been pretty steady and it seems the Marlin have moved down towards the 1150 and Santa Maria areas, and from about 1 to 3 miles offshore. What we are seeing is many of the Marlin are full of squid as there is an abundance in the water. So we have been just pitching live bait at them till we find the right one to take the bait. Most of our boats have been fishing about everyday and we are averaging about one to two marlin per trip, so it isn’t too bad, actually pretty steady.
DORADO: Just isn’t happening right now for Dorado! we catch one here and there and not very day.
WAHOO: I have not heard of any this past week. Not too much Wahoo action right now.
TUNA: We are still catching a few Tuna this past week and have had some good days like one day we got like 6 decent size Tuna doing some Kite fishing, but basically we are averaging maybe 3 to 4 per trip. Most Tuna are 12 to 35lbs and along with Kite fishing we are using cedar plugs and king busters. The San Jamie Banks is the hot spot for the Tuna, so head that direction if you are going out for them.
INSHORE: Big Sierras being landed on live bait, and we are seeing action from the Solmar to the Pump House, using hootchies also. Rooster fish action in close to shore has been pretty good over the last few weeks If you use live bait you will have a good chance of landing a big one. We have been catching them by El Tule and also in the same area as the Roosters are the Sierra and it’s pretty wide open in the same areas. The Roosters are active and biting good. Jigging iron and trolling rapalas at the Margarita Rock Piles has been really productive for Yellowtail and Amberjack. There are some nice size Grouper being caught on chunk bait in the rocks off of Solmar.
The combined panga fleets launching out of La Playita, Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out approximately 60 charters for the week, with anglers reporting a fish count of: 9 striped marlin, 29 yellowfin tuna, 11 amberjack, 14 yellow snapper, 8 barred pargo, 16 leopard grouper, 5 pompano, 22 huachinango, 14 roosterfish, 19 sierra, 8 bonito and 210 triggerfish.

Cabo fishing report June 5th 2017.
The weather is great, 80s during the day and 70s at night.
It’s been a bit windy on the Pacific side so we have been fishing the Sea of Cortez, catching many big Roosterfish, striped marlin, yellowfin tuna and dorados as well.
The pictures bellow are from our fishing trip on board Tailcheaser and you can see how big the roosterfish are this year.
Our catch success rate has been great for the last month and a half witch is as expected since Summer is just around the corner and thats our best fishing season.
